Why Vue JS?

Why Vue JS?

JavaScript to web development is like an engine to a mechanic – it’s just not going to work without it. As there are about as many (good) JS frameworks as there are car brands, picking the right one can get confusing pretty fast. Whoever you ask will have an opinion, and asking five people will likely get you five different answers, all with good arguments as to why their favourite is the best.

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all. Personal preferences, projects, teams all factor into making the ‘right’ decision – but some frameworks are definitely more versatile than others. ‘Purists’ will argue that Backbone, being very small and light is the best choice, ‘Traditionalists’ will argue that jQuery is the go-to solution, and so on and so forth.

While some trial and error will probably be required to find the best solution for you, Vue JS 2.0 is definitely worth a look. Not as ‘bare’ as Backbone, not nearly as rigid and huge as Angular or React it gets the job done without any additional libraries, extensions, plug-ins or what-have-you’s.

That isn’t to say that there aren’t any – in awesome-vue you will find anything your heart desires, the selling point is, however, that you won’t need them. Focussed on the view layer, it is still perfectly capable of powering single-page apps all by itself.

JavaScript Is Not Expressive

JavaScript Is Not Expressive

Rant Mode: Engaged.

The word “expressive” is often bandied about when describing the features of a language. In the same way that every new CSS framework that hits the front page of Hacker News is “light-weight”, “modular”, and “modern”, everyone’s favourite language will be at some point described by them as expressive.

Whether or not a language is expressive is a relative measure. To be expressive is to effectively convey thought or feeling. There are some languages that are so expressive that you immediately understand the author’s intent without needing to know the syntax. Take the following lines of Ruby, for example:

The 10 Best JavaScript Alternatives – How to choose?

The 10 Best JavaScript Alternatives – How to choose?

JavaScript is everywhere. It’s currently the 7th most popular programming language on the planet according to the Tiobe index. But basic JavaScript isn’t too magnificent. It isn’t the easiest language to work with and brings with it some challenges, the most troublesome being how hard it is to write manageable and scalable code with ease. This kind of sucks because of how widely used the language is.

JavaScript is the uncontested standard for browser based programming. Once Node.js hit the scene JavaScript started to take over server side programming as well. The arrival of hybrid apps brought it into the world of mobile development making it even more prominent. Realizing this trend a ton of languages that compile to JavaScript were created to make developers lives easier which is what I am here to share with you today. Due to the abundance of JavaScript alternative languages, I have tried to cover the modern and more widely used ones to make your life easier.
